The film is a visceral wake-up call that humans are no match for the sheer force and capricious will of Earth’s most precious element. From the precarious frozen waters of Russia’s Lake Baikal to Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma to Venezuela’s mighty Angel Falls, water is AQUARELA’s main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling visual detail.

A true experience in the movie theatre, Kossakovsky’s use of stunning imagery and sounds creates powerful moments of nature. Cars trapped under ice. Icebergs falling. Waterfalls towering above the clouds. An ocean rejecting its borders. AQUARELA evokes complex emotions: the visceral images show the intensity of the many worlds of water, but the film is also incredibly beautiful. Alongside all this are the strange ways humans try to cope – with dire results captured on camera. This film is a warning. (source:
